Visiting us at Waltham Place

We welcome visitors of all ages, from school children, biodynamic apprentices, garden enthusiasts and volunteers, through to our outreach groups working with those with sight loss or dementia. We aim to inspire and educate others to consider the needs of the environment and adopt a chemical fee approach to gardening and to their food.

Throughout the year a series of walks, talks, events and courses are on offer allowing you to join us on a journey of exploration into the flora, fauna, food and philosophy of Waltham Place.

Our farm shop offers seasonal, home produced fruit, vegetables and meat reflected in the tearoom’s menu of seasonal produce.

Farming

We view the farm as a whole interconnected organism. The cows provide manure, whilst the gardens provide compost, to feed the soils and boost fertility. The soils grow our crops and grasses for the animals to eat. The cycle is continual, supported by a healthy ecosystem of fungus, invertebrates, animals and birds, working in harmony to keep the system in balance. Waltham has a timeless beauty and is a joy to visit in any season.

NATURALISTIC GARDENING

Ornamental gardens

The gardens at Waltham Place offer the visitor a unique perspective on gardening; a marriage of ancient and modern ideas where diverse naturalistic plantings exist within the formal boundaries of 17th Century walled gardens and clipped hedges of box and yew. Organic since 1984 and biodynamic since 2006, traditional knowledge informs our gardening practices, and chemicals are banned from the gardens. An oasis for wildlife, the gardens are home to a vast array of invertebrates, birds and small mammals who all play a role in the life of this beautiful and fascinating garden. Waltham has a timeless beauty and is a joy to visit in any season.
